Engineering was the name of the game, but candy and frosting were certainly the focus of the activity as Eagle View Elementary School first-graders constructed and decorated gingerbread houses Friday, Dec. 14.
Each student drew a plan for his or her house and a materials list before beginning. The houses were made of cut graham crackers built around empty milk cartons, held together by vanilla frosting.
After creating lists, students gathered materials from a table covered in bowls of assorted candy, marshmallows, sprinkles and pretzels.
